New York, New Jersey and Connecticut Announced a 14 Day Quarantine for all arrivals from states with high numbers of coronavirus cases. Failure to quarantine in New York could result in a $1000 fine; New Jersey and Connecticut have not yet announced penalties for scofflaws.
It's an interesting reversal from earlier this year in the COVID-19 pandemic, when states such as Florida and Texas imposed 14 day quarantines on visitors from New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey, citing the high case numbers there (see Which U.S. States Have 14-Day Quarantines for Visitors?)
